Training Seminars

Ridgeline Athletics Coaches Eric Carter and Gary Robbins have developed a one-day seminar that will cover all the training basics.

We use an informal presentation style that allows you to interact and personalize the conversation and presentation.

This seminar is designed to cover all the relevant topics and questions you may have in regards to getting the most out of your training and especially your racing efforts. The only prerequisite for this seminar is that you are comfortable running at least 15 km of undulating terrain. You do not have to be competitive, fast or elite. This seminar is very much designed with the everyday trail runner in mind.

Upcoming Events:

June 10, 2017 – Squamish Event Hosted by Capra Running Co.
June 24, 2017 – North Vancouver Event Hosted by Distance Runwear
Fall 2017 – TBD

Schedule (example):

8:00am – 10:00am: Classroom Component

We’ll cover developing a training plan, prioritization and periodization, common training pitfalls, altitude training, fueling/hydration, race day prep, pacing, balancing non-training stress such as managing work, life, and running, along with any and all other topics you may want to touch on. Wanna talk about chafing? Let’s do it! The floor is yours 🙂 We’ll also be giving away training plans for beginner ultra distances and free entries into upcoming CMTS races.
